I want my hen and chicks to have time with each other for a bit, since they just hatched. But Mama is a BIG girl and my brooding/ hatching hut is not that big. I worry about her accidently stomping a chick. My silkie did it with a quail chick she hatched. Just found it dead when a few hours ago it was fine. Pretty sure it was an accident oof an overzealous mama getting to stretch out after 3 weeks on the nest. How long do hens usuually stay with their chicks? And if I remove her, say now or in a week, and put her back in the general populatiion where she can't hear the chicks....will she just go back to living her merry liife or will it traumatize her to take her away from her chicks? They just hatched like, a day or two ago.
